Reporting Abuse


See how we can help if you want to report abuse.


If you are in immediate danger, call 911. The Leadville Police Department and Lake County Sheriff’s Office can protect you. They also can help when you are ready to press charges against an abuser.

If you’re not sure what to do, please call our 24/7 hotline at 719-486-3530.

The Advocates offer help that is free and confidential to the fullest extent of the law. We are required to report child abuse and neglect, but we can keep anything else you tell us confidential. We will help you stay safe without calling law enforcement if you prefer.
